Did Someone Say Chili Cookoff? Magic City’s Best is Coming Up
Just about everybody likes chili. It's hearty, delicious, and fairly affordable to make. It's a popular winter dish in Montana and every cook has their own "special recipe" they feel makes their chili the best. If you believe your chili is pretty awesome, it's time to put your money where your mouth is and enter Magic City's Best Chili Cook-Off. It's on Sunday, February 19, 2023, at The Depot on historic Montana Ave.
The best thing about chili?
There are so many different ways to make chili uniquely yours. To paraphrase Forest Gump; you've got your classic chili, green chili, midwestern chili, brisket chili, fire-roasted chili, hot chili, mild chili, beanless chili, vegan chili, crockpot chili, chicken chili, fajita chili, Cincinnati chili... I'll stop.
